Horn Book
Voigt's Tillerman Cycle (including the 1983 Newbery Medalwinning Dicey's Song and A Solitary Blue, a 1984 Newbery Honor Book) has been reissued as a set. The books open to reveal spacious pages, with added leading between lines and a wider typeface. The contemporary look and accessible layout should help introduce a new generation of readers to the indomitable Dicey Tillerman and her world.

Letting Go
The four Tillerman children finally have a home at their grandmother's rundown farm on the Maryland shore. It's what Dicey has dreamed of for her three younger siblings, but after watching over the others for so long, it's hard to let go. Who is Dicey, if she's no longer the caretaker for her family?
Dicey finds herself in new friends, in a growing relationship with her grandmother, and in the satisfaction of refinishing the old boat she found in the barn. Then, as Dicey experiences the trials and pleasures of making a new life, the past comes back with devastating force, and Dicey learns just how necessary -- and painful -- letting go can be.
